Sophos has been named Security Vendor of the Year at the Computer Reseller News (CRN) Channel Awards ceremony in London. The award recognizes our overall contribution to business development and commitment to understanding partner business needs through our 100% channel-first reseller strategy.
Now in its 20th year, the CRN Awards represent the pinnacle of achievement in the UK market, rewarding outstanding performance in the IT channel.
In an increasingly complex security environment, we work with partners to make security simple to deliver, implement and manage. Over the last 12 months, we have created a more flexible and generous Partner Program, providing partners with protection for deal registrations, attractive margins and joint lead generation initiatives. The Partner Program also provides up-to-date certification, to ensure partner sales and technical teams are fully trained across our latest solutions to help drive partner businesses forward. Delivered by dedicated channel relationship managers, we get to know partner businesses to ensure they feel supported every step of the way.
James Vyvyan, Regional Vice President, UKI, Sophos said: “We’re delighted to have won Security Vendor of the Year. Sophos is committed to a channel first strategy; and we believe that by taking the time to understand our partners’ business model, we can work together to provide the solutions that best suit their customers’ IT security needs.”
Sophos also won two awards in CRN’s DACH awards on 13 November: Security Vendor of the Year and Channel Champion of the Year 2013.
